Leicestershire and Rutland NatureSpotters Wanted!

Wildlife is in trouble & effective conservation relies on knowing the status of each species. You can help by logging your wildlife sightings on NatureSpot (website | mobile app). Do I need to register? If you care about wildlife, record it!  We need data on all species, common or rare. All records are passed on to local & national bodies & used to further our conservation knowledge. NatureSpot only collects data for Leicestershire & Rutland. If you record elsewhere, please use iRecord
